Subject: 33rd Anniversary
We get inside and this was by far one of the smallest venues I’ve ever seen them perform at. After seeing the 3 blazing shows at the Nassau plus the show in Hartford Ct, we were sure this was going to be something special. Perhaps our exceptions were too high. This show was a bit of a let down. The show was fairly typical for this time period with a few highlights including a hot Let it Grow, Eye of the World and Comes a Time.
3 stars for an average show
Subject: Sounds 2nd gen analog to me...
The placement of the mics is great, the crowd noise is apropriate, and the show has a great setlist and performance. But there is enough warble in it that it sounds the source is either 2nd gen or overplayed first gen that sat on the dashboard all summer.
Nevertheless, for those of us who are old ehough, and you younguns who are open-minded enough, this is a great show to have.
5 stars for performance.
5 stars for basic recording
2 stars for the condition of the tape.
12 stars divided by 3 veriables equals 4 stars for this one.
It would be 5 stars otherwise but for the above-mentioned flaws.
